In this same issue, there’s also an article detailing how J.J. Abrams eventually caved in and agreed to direct this epicness.
“You rarely get a chance to be involved in something that you would typically be an audience for,”.. “Katie, my wife, said, ‘If you want to do this and you don’t, you’re going to regret this.’ It was really about being willing to take that leap, and jump into the possibilities of what these characters are doing, and where they are.”
J.J. Abrams also said that he’s thrilled to see what filmmaker Rian Johnson is developing so far for the next installment STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII, but don’t expect Abrams to return for the 9th episode.
“No, I’m not going to direct Episode IX, as much as I am deeply envious of anyone who gets to work with this group of people on the future movies.”
Legendary screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan (“The Empire Strikes Back,” “Return Of The Jedi”) also chimed in about what drew him back to this universe..
“I thought, ‘Wow, okay, these people have lived — they’re in a different place in their lives, Han and Leia and so on. They’ve lived the same 30 years I have. What would that be like? How would you see things differently?’”…“And I was trying to figure out how I saw things differently, and one of the surprises is that you don’t learn all that much. You haven’t become much wiser than you were, and things are not clearer to you, and the world is just as confusing as it always was — and that’s a kind of lovely thing to get to write about again. Age does not necessarily bring wisdom; it just brings experience.”
